the expansion includes higher taxes, includes medicare cuts. it also at the end of the day, according to the congressional budget office, does very little for most people in this country to actually reduce the cost of their health care insurance. in fact, what we've seen through the studies that have been done by the c.b.o., the congressional budget office, by the c.m.s. actuary is for most americans they are going to see at best their health insurance premiums stay the same and if you're in the market, go up. the health care bill is an example of this runaway federal spending. in the latter part of that debate, we got a response from the c.b.o. to a question that was posed by the senator from alabama, senator sessions, with regard to how the accounting is done on medicare. because one of the arguments that we heard throughout the course of the debate is that it would extend the life span of medicare. in fact, when the c.b.o., the the question was posed of them: what happens with this additional medicare tax and these medicare cuts that would be imposed upon providers and on senior ci

, a spending freeze on everything from social security and medicare and medicaid. and fiscal commission, it would be a weaker version what just got defeated in the senate. he mixed it up with republicans over the economy in baltimore. at one point he complained the question was be a example of how hard it was to have a bipartisan conversation. he is another take on the meeting. >> i said i haven't been an obstructionist. you haven't been the one that has been following through. but that is the dialogue we need. if we get the house democrats to come in, we would have a lot of progress. >> former president george h.w. bush and his son jeb paid a call in the office. mr. bush was in town for a meeting. >> julie: caroline, thank you very much. >> gregg: house speaker nancy pelosi insisting this week the push for health care reform is alive and well. she she is saying that the house will implement several strategies to get a reform bill passed whether that works or not. what does it mean for the political landscape in the upcoming midterm elections. by ron york, chief correspondent for the wa

insurance and effort to fix the earlier cuts to doctors under medicare, all of which can add to costs but are not counted. >> we believe the american people need to understand that then the cost to government state and federal is $2.1 trillion. >> perhaps we should call this the mark mcgwire bill. why? because spending is on steroids and there is no transparency. >> the president wasn't at the meeting the entire time but the meeting went on for hours as the democrats struggled to find common ground between the house and senate. new york democrat charles rangel says the democrats are facing serious problems on both sides of the capital. getting a bill passed at all. tomorrow, the president will try to improve the chances by going to capitol hill to make a personal plea to all house democrats. bret? >> bret: okay. we'll stay on it. jim, thank you. we will look at the effect of the haiti earthquake and the u.s. response when the fox all-stars join me after the break. hi, may i help you? we're shopping for car insurance, and our friends said we should start here. good friends -- we compar
't want premiums to go up, taxes go up, they didn't want us to take money from medicare to create a entitlement program and were scared about the spending and debt in washington. if the what you say and democrats didn't get the message they missed the point of what happened in massachusetts. >> on the other hand you just heard robert gibbs site a pole that indicates that they want scott brown to come in and work with democrats and they're not -- they want some healthcare bill, just not the one being passed. there are some positives there, so what about his argument that in fact there isn't in complete rejection of the obama agenda. >> i think so the message that scott brown effectively gave in massachusetts -- by the way, he's entitled to the lion's share of the credit with the right message at the right time but the message was not let's tweak this around the edges. it's about starting over. if that's what the white house wants to do, there are a lot of republicans that would like to work with them to do things that bring down the cost of healthcare and will make it more affordab
, strengthen medicare for seniors, and stop insurance company abuses, let me know. let me know. let me know. i'm eager to see it. >> president obama last night daring his critics to come to the table with a better plan for health care reform. he wants congress to get it done. and today, house speaker nancy pelosi promised that they would pass a bill by any means necessary. joining me now is ohio congressman and former presidential candidate, dennis kucinich. congressman, good to have you on tonight. . good to be with you. >> your thoughts on a way forward at this point? it looks like there's going to have to be major concessions, even though there is a few issues here, on the senate side or the house side to finally get something going. give us that path. what do you think, dennis? >> well, first of all, my own personal opinion, ed, is that the senate bill is a nonstarter, that we should pay attention to what happened in massachusetts, take a deep breath, take a step back, create millions of jobs, regain the confidence in the american people and then come back with a bill that the president ap

lieberman and senator nelson. the other thing is to start over again and add medicare, add 55-year-olds up to medicare, which is what the senate was thinking about doing in the first place. there's a big advantage if you do that. you don't get universal insurance and insurance reform, but the senate bill has very little reform in it anyway. you get per insured rate away who can't get it because they're over 55. i think that kind of approach is the kind of approach i would use. get it done, have it easy to understand. the expansion of medicare is easy to understand. we can run it through reconciliation pretty quickly. you don't have a choice. if you're going to get anything done in the senate from this point on, it's going to be through reconciliation. >> governor dean, thank you very much. we have to take a quick break right now, and we'll be checking in with scott brown's headquarters. hevy tahoe, south on i-75, near exit 5. we're on it. onstar, we may have that tahoe. ok, i'll flash the lights. we got it. it's in the clear. i'm sending a signal to cut the power. we got him. mr. ross, the
on medicare, who are looking at a medicare trust fund that's going to be insolvent too soon. it's important to our economy as a whole if we're going to be competitive. >> the devil in the details? >> sure. >> is it too expensive as it is now and do you think it has a chance of ending up on his desk? >> well, i voted for the bill that passed out of the senate. it was fully paid for and it helped to reduce our deficit over the next ten years. it's going to be too expensive if we don't address this issue. and, you know, i think we'll know in the coming weeks whether we're going to be able to get a bill through. >> and one of the things the president talked about, time and again -- he really lamb entered the partisan divide in washington. i want to play what jeb bush had to say, senator. >> it's one thing to give a good speech. the other thing is to invite people who don't agree exactly with your point of view to build consensus. if the president chose leadership in that regard, leaders of the republican party and democratic party will have to follow. >> given the current political divide, the
is not being debated openly and fairly. it will raise taxes, it will raise taxes, it will hurt medicare, it will destroy jobs, and run our nation deeper into debt. martha: fox news alert for you, we're awaiting a police conference in virginia following the arresting of a man suspected of gunning down eight people, the suspect eventually turned himself into the police early this morning after a horrific multiple shooting. these are from the scene in appomattox, 100 miles south of richmond, police believe that christopher speight spot and -- shotald killed eight people, investigators discovered three bodies inside a home, three more outside. we have a live report from the scene of that horrific crime. bill: in the meantime lawmakers launching new investigations into the failed christmas day bombing plot of this passenger jet into detroit, several congressional committees holding meetings on that, among them, the homeland security committee, and secretary napolitano is scheduled to testify. look there, screen left. lawmakers looking into the security lapses that allowed a nigerian suspect

[ laughter ] but i think that the president understands now how serious this problem is. and it requires hatchets and scalpel scalpels. >> reporter: the white house briefed democrats last night on the spending freeze proposal and didn't offer a lot of details. until they do, majority leader harry reid and nancy pelosi, are non-committal. >> glenn: major, thank you. home prices rose for the sixth straight month in november. standard & poor's case-shiller index reports the biggest gains were in phoenix and san francisco. the biggest declines were in new york and chicago. consumer confidence is up by

a sweetheart deal to let people out of medicare advantage there. is a sweetheart deal for a number of counties in florida. 13 different senators said we want something special for us. and said if you didn't get it you're not doing a good job. >> did any republican senator get a special deal in this bill? >> not that i saw. i think the bill is terrible and republicans uniformly saw that. which is why all 40 of us voted against it. it raises taxes and going to cause families in america to have their premium goes up. >> do you believe that senator ben nelson when he accepted his $300 million deal, do you believe that he, at the time was thinking every state should and would get that? >> no. >> that is -- what is that? what is that? >> winston churchhill would have called it. >> this is like, he's come up with this now. >> well, you laugh. >> he had to come up with something that. inteft he can come up with. he said he's going to withhold the vote on the principle of where he stood on federal funding and abortion. then, all of a sudden gives into language that is not the language people wanted and
, you look at healthcare and they cut a half a trillion from medicare n massachusetts we have 98% of other people insured, why we would county medicare half a trillion, have longer lines, less coverage and subsidize other states. et cetera -- it's not good for massachusetts and people have lost faith in the process. there's no transparency and in in addition to homeland security it's resonating with the residents of massachusetts. >> bring me up speed. were you involved in then governor mitt romney's moves to establish state care, what was called state care, but to broaden healthcare coverage for all in massachusetts? >> i voted on it. it was a bipartisan evident. we were paying almost a billion dollar to the hospitals. >> the argument was that you contributed to something that now you're against? >> that's not true. they're interest different programs, what we have is a free market enterprise, providing insurance to people in massachusetts. ed the plans in washington are one size fits all that will cost almost a trillion plus dollars and raise taxes when we don't need it. why pa

? now, president obama -- >> bret: you increase the medicare payroll tax. >> that's exactly right. that's the other idea that's being discussed. but what that means is, you know, recently the polls have shown -- the gallup had the polls going up a little bit for the health care plan, but if the seniors buy off and that's exactly what's going to happen if you start attacking medicare, he said he reads the polls and letters at night, this is very difficult. >> the hypocrisy here is really sad. this is the president who ran on the premise that he would bring new politics with a special interest would not write the bills, where this would be a politics of the people, that it would be transparency. and this is the most corrupt deal-swapping piece of legislation in memory. what you have is a bill being written by democratic constituencies on behalf of democratic kin is -- constituencies. the biggest -- the biggest drain on health care in the country, huge in the hundreds of billions of year is the unnecessary procedures and practices as a result of illegal malpractice system out of control. d
